I never thought of it before, but I guess the original E72 was a continuation of what they did with Anthem Of The Sun - mixing live and studio.

Skull and Roses was recorded the same way. But E-72 was mixed to sound more studio than live.

Couldn't agree more; this was "the problem" with it at the time of its release, at least for us in the E Bay Area. It was too polished, too refined, to unlike what we expected. Also, far too homogenuous. I think this all derives from what you describe.

At a party, the ONE live album you could reach for to "reach" newbies, was always S&R, and of course, you also used the two 70 studio albums for this effort. And if you really wanted "live, dynamic DEAD energy" you played StSt-->Eleven...

Or, of course, 8-6-71.
